I got a question here about syslogd : the syslogd seems to keep a track
of its output files, such as maillog, maillog.0, etc..
I just don't understand how it decides when it's necessary to move up
to a new file name (i.e. move maillog to maillog.0 and create a new maillog).

Does anybody know the rules ? It's important for us to have the system logs
as a whole part.
